Chairman Interview: Paul Matysek Of Nano One Materials, Leading Lithium Technology Company

Date: Wednesday, November 4, 2015 12:12 PM EDT

Most entrepreneurs spend their entire careers without a meaningful success story. You have three. Is there any commonalty among the companies you support?

Yes. Timing, People and Execution. I have been lucky in reading trends early (Uranium – Energy Metals Corp – Potash – Potash One and Lithium – Lithium One). I'm committed to attracting and working with the best professionals in the sector and relentlessly focused on executing a business plan. I believe that Nano One Materials (TSX-V:NNO) has these attributes, that's why I'm Chairman and Director of the Company.

Any unique, potentially game-changing business model is, by definition, difficult to comprehend. Can you please describe Nano One in layperson's terms?

Nano One’s processing technology could enable a new generation of batteries by making it economically viable to produce a wider range of advanced energy storage materials. We start with low cost raw materials, such as lithium carbonate, and blend it with other metals using a scalable, patented process. This reduces manufacturing complexity and cost, while delivering materials that are more robustly structured for longer lasting performance. We aim to license and partner with key players in the industry to commercialize our technology and are already having meetings with a number of parties.

Is Nano One Materials largely a lithium story? If so, can you please comment on the lithium sector?

There is pent-up demand and a rapidly growing market for lithium powered batteries. Nano One’s technology makes lithium carbonate (a cheaper form of lithium) viable for up and coming battery materials and sets us apart from other players.

Technology is changing at an increasingly rapid pace. Nano One appears to embrace change, is it technology agnostic?

Our technology can be used to make a wide range of advanced materials, so it's not hard for us to shift with industry trends. So yes, we are in fact technology agnostic when it comes to advanced energy storage materials. We expect that our technology will scale and we have a growing list of strong patents. We are working hard to prove to industry players our technology's performance in real life batteries.
